Tequila Tuesday

Top: Chopped up thrifted T
Skirt: Vintage; will be added to the shop Thursday
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Cuff: Gift via Kat
Rings: Assorted silver

This outfit was inspired by my desperate need for a margarita. Admit it, I'm a fruit hat away from looking like I belong on a banana sticker. Anyway, back to that margarita. It is necessary due to the rain that ruined my morning shoot, the battery in my camera remote that died 3 pictures into these photos, and the creepster who not only watched me shooting but insisted I take a photo of him too.

It's God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em Tuesday,

A Black Belt In Awkward

Blouse: Thrifted
Shorts: Vintage; will be added to the shop Thursday
Bag: Coach via eBay
Oxfords: Steve Madden
Foundation: Ivory; on legs only.

I often blame my ever bruised legs on my pale skin, being clumsy, competitive thrifting, or any combination of the three. People who don't know me (at ALL) might even think I am involved in contact sports. Then there are times like these when my newly formed calf bruise can only be the result of fake karate kicking the boy, and having my leg land hard on a doorknob. I'm practically a ninja when it comes to fake karate.

It's points for not falling on my as* Monday,

It Must Have Been Love

Five Things I Love Friday; These are my current obsessions.

1. The SartorialTwist

The Nasty Gal Blog introduced me to the site earlier this week. It randomly mixes up outfits from the popular street style blog The Sartorialist. I was warned that it was an entertaining time suck, but I tried it anyway. I will never get that hour of my week back. You have also been warned.

2. Iced tea

I get one caffeinated beverage a day, and normally that is coffee. Boiling hot, bitter, black coffee. I love it. Unfortunately it doesn't taste half as good iced. (I'm not big on sugar, milk, or anything getting in the way of my caffeine buzz). I'm thinking unsweetened iced tea is going to have to pick up the slack in this summer heat.

3. Fringe

I can't get enough. Although I often feel like I am being attacked by bugs when I wear my fringed skirt. Totally worth it.

4. Planking

Oh planking. Whether you think it's good, bad, or over... it's pretty effing funny. I'll watch strangers with their faces touching the ground any day.

5. A Beautiful Mess Wedding

We probably haven't discussed this here, and by we I mean me because I really do all the talking, but the idea of planning a wedding nauseates me. Married yes; Wedding not my jam. However, I adore everything about Elsie's wedding. Check out all the pics on her blog and on Style Me Pretty if you haven't seen them yet. First girl to dye her hair blue can be my maid of honor when the day comes. Go!

Have A Great Weekend,
XO Robyn
